Unmerge bunch of 10 digit numbers in excel

Hi

I have a bunch of 10 digit numbers in excel. Below is an example
How do I split them so that all the individual 10 digit number are accounted for (6100238281, 6100238141, etc)
When i do lookups it only grabs the first number. I tried text to columns but doesn't work
.
Appreciate any help.

Thank You


CELL A
6100238281
6100238141
6100238246
6100238142
6100238126

Another formula approach using FILTERXML can be

=IFERROR(FILTERXML("<t><s>"&SUBSTITUTE($A2,CHAR(10),"</s><s>")&"</s></t>","//s["&COLUMNS($A$1:A$1)&"]"),"")

With Power Query here is an alternative means to get what you want

l
Code:
let
    Source = Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="Table3"]}[Content],
    #"Split Column by Delimiter" = Table.SplitColumn(Source, "Column1", Splitter.SplitTextByDelimiter("#(lf)", QuoteStyle.Csv), {"Column1.1", "Column1.2", "Column1.3", "Column1.4", "Column1.5"})
in
    #"Split Column by Delimiter"
Power Query is a free AddIn for Excel 2010 and 2013, and is built-in functionality from Excel 2016 onwards (where it is referred to as "Get & Transform Data").

It is a powerful yet simple way of getting, changing and using data from a broad variety of sources, creating steps which may be easily repeated and refreshed. I strongly recommend learning how to use Power Query - it's among the most powerful functionalities of Excel.

I tried text to columns but doesn't work
I managed text to columns; choose Other in step 2, make sure there's nothing in the associated box, then with the text cursor still in that box, on the keyboard, hold down the left Alt key, then on the numeric keypad (NOT the number keys across the top of the keyboard) type 010, then let go of the Alt key (you won't see anything obvious in the box). The result is:
71990

Because the OP states that the numbers have exactly 10 digits, one can simply split on field width:
= MID(data, 1+11*(k-1), 10)

71997
Data is the cell A2 and k is the range B1:B7 containing the digits 1-6 with number formatting to add text.

The other route is to key in 'CTRL+J'.
